Troubleshoot wipers

Best if you have a wiring diagram of at least the part of
the curcuit your going to work on (wiper circuit)

That applies to any electrical issue,simply can't start your
checking or testing without a road map.

If it were to guess for you,I would say the motor has failed

Even with a wiring diagram it isn't always easy to jump it
once out of the car,to test it. You won't have the internal
wiring diagram for the motor.

The switch you can turn on & use your volt meter at the
wiper motor with it disconnected,but again need to have the
diagram to probe the correct wires

How do you troubleshoot wiper blades on a 1995 Jeep Grand cherokee?

First check the wiper fuse then check the relay by turning wipers to on position and listen for the relay to click if it clicks its good.If they are good then turn the ignition and wiper switches on and check for 12 volts at the wiper motor.If you 12 volts then the wiper motor is faulty.Replace motor.

Wipers are going even though they are not turned on

There is a parking circuit in the motor which brings the wipers back to the down "parked" position even if you have turned off the wipers. Most likely your problem lies with that circuit, not replaceable nor repairable as it is inside the wiper motor. You have to replace the whole wiper motor. However there could also be a fault in the wiper switch. The cost to replace either item, especially if you are wrong with the first guess, justifies taking it to a dealer and have them troubleshoot the problem. A good tech with a volt/ohmmeter can tell you which is bad without total disassembly.

Wipers stopped

It is possible that the wiper motors are burnt out. Its funny, lately Ive been seeing lots of those cars from that year having the same problem so to save you the trouble of troubleshooting find the part which is easy and the mechanics to install it also easy DARN LABOR FEE.well GOOD LUCK.
